Annual Community Issues Breakfast

The 8th annual Wake Up! with TFS issues breakfast is set for Thursday, September 13, 7:30 a.m.-9 a.m., at PNC Arena, Raleigh. This event, which sells out every year, gets community leaders and decision-makers together to talk about mental-health and other issues affecting our citizens. This year’s theme will be “Changing the Faces of ACES (Adverse Childhood Experiences)” with uplifting stories of how TFS’s wraparound case management approach is helping people deal with their past and stabilize themselves for the future. A panel discussion led by CEO Alice Lutz will feature NC DHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, Phil Redmond of The Duke Endowment and Dr. Katie Rosenbalm of Duke University’s Child and Family Policy Center.

Co-chairs are Crystal Suazo and Donna Troublefield. Sponsorships begin at $500 and go up to $5,000 for Presenting Sponsor. Click here for a sponsorship packet:
